I'm on Zoloft since 3 years, tried to get off  after I contacted my GP, han recommended me to go on to Buspairon, With step down reducing zoloft, I ve stopped Zoloft about 10 days without any problem, but at the day 11 got numbness in arms, nausea, headache, dizziness, couldn't sleep. I had 4 days to start buspairone. Tried to take 25-50 mg atarax which is a stress and anxiety symptom eleminator, but doesn't succeed. I ve got back to my 25mg zoloft which helped me after 30 min and got back to normal. I'm tired from zoloft unwanted effect like getting extra wheight, its just this side effect which annoying me, otherwise its fantastic . I'm wondering if Buspairone doing the same side effect, and if man can drink with buspairone?

Hi clarification please:
Are you talking Bupropion = Wellbutrin  or
Buspirone = Buspar ?  Two completely different drugs and the generic spellings are very close.
